National Holiday

Just under a month ago we celebrated Norway’s national holiday, the 17th of May. Needless to say we really “celebrated” ;) On the 16th we all met up at Caro’s, and the day after I painfully woke up at 9 to have breakfast at Daniel’s friend’s house. I don’t have a bunad, the national costume, so I opted for a red, white, and blue, outfit instead. The dress is from Theory, and is knitted, but feels like thin silk.

IMG_0455The costume is ridiculously expensive due to the vast amounts of silver used. The pins are beautifully handcrafted, and usually passed down in families.
